Simon Rondeau-Gagné received his B.Sc in chemistry from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi in 2008. In 2010, he completed his master’s degree at Université Laval under the supervision of Prof. Jean-François Morin and Prof. Mario Leclerc. After completing his PhD in 2014, he joined the group of Prof. Zhenan Bao at Stanford University where he developed novel materials for skin-inspired electronics as a FRQNT postdoctoral fellow. He began his independent career as Assistant Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor in 2016.
His research interests focus on the preparation of new materials with innovative properties for the next generation of electronic devices. Specifically, his group develops new stretchable and self-healing polymers that can be used as active materials in various devices such as transistors and sensors. His research contributes to the rise of more efficient and sustainable technologies for advanced technologies having applications in electronics, nanotechnology and even healthcare.
